March 23, 2016 | 9:00AM-10:30AM

After decades of paralysis, relations between the United States and Cuba are changing. However, increased interaction between the two nations has created a complex legal landscape for companies interested in the opportunities that may exist in Cuba. WFLS, in cooperation with the ABA SIL Export Controls and Economic Sanctions Committee and the International Law Forum of the Women’s Bar Association of DC, is pleased to present a discussion relating to the ongoing legal and political developments with practitioners and U.S. government officials.
